“Trehs” is an abbreviation of Theresia, a common name in the Alpine region. Legend tells that Trehs was a famed healer in the Sarntal Valley area who was skilled in harnessing the power of plants. The Sarntal Valley Alps is home to Trehs’ roots, and it is here, at an altitude of 2,000 metres, that the Sarntal Valley mountain pine thrives. The local people have always used it as a home remedy for all imaginable ailments, and in the Sarntal Valley the traditional methods of extracting mountain pine oil is as old as the knowledge of its powers. Our origins, and our impetus to create natural Alpine cosmetics, are rooted in this natural landscape and this knowledge, passed down through generations.
